Graduate Research Assistantships in the Environmental Sciences

The Center for the Environment (CFE) at Plymouth State University (PSU) in NH is inviting applications for graduate research assistantships in the environmental sciences.  CFE supports environmental research across multiple departments and disciplines.

Students often collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and scientists from other academic, governmental, and non- governmental organizations including organizations such as Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, White Mountain National Forest, NH Department of Environmental Services, Appalachian Mountain Club, and multiple lake associations.

Current research areas of interest include:

– Issues in Lake Management

– Environmental Aesthetics

– Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change

– Human Impacts on Biodiversity

The participating degree programs include Departments of Environmental Science & Policy (ESP), Biological Sciences (BIO), and Atmospheric Science & Chemistry (ASC).  Applications should be submitted to PSU�s  Graduate Studies. The GRA stipend and tuition support are supported through CFE but the MS degree resides in and is managed by the respective department. The student�s academic advisor must be CFE Affiliated Faculty in order to apply for the GRA.
